POEMS ON CRANE
(after Stephen Crane)

I. I SAW A MAN









[And] I saw a man pursuing the horizon;
[And] Round and round they sped.
[And] I was disturbed [at this];
[And] I accosted the man.
"It is futile," I said.'"You can never" --

"You lie," [he cried,
And ran on.]

II. THE WAYFARER
III. HYMN
IV. THE BLADES OF GRASS
V. THE HEART (IN THE DESERT)
